Fred Lumbuye Finally Freed, Bobi Wine Applauds Legal Team

NUP social media propagandist Fred Lumbuye Kajjubi has finally been freed after spending close to 3 months under incarceration.

Lumbuye was arrested by Turkish authorities in July and was slated to be extradited back to Uganda as the State Minister for foreign affairs Henry Okello Oryem announced.

However, after then Lumbuye’s whereabouts became mysterious as the government became tight-lipped after the arrest.

Rumors started circulating on how he had been brought back to Uganda while others maintained that he was still in Turkey.

The myths were so many that even the NUP team didn’t seem to know where there man was.

Turkey was criticised by Bobi Wine’s camp both locally and in the diaspora and pleaded with the Turkish authorities not to deport Lumbuye because what awaited him was ‘inhuman.’

However, today the People Power camp has been blazing with joy as the news that Lumbuye has been freed including NUP principle who hailed the NUP legal team for the job well done.

“I’m very glad that after several months in detention, Fred Kajjubi Lumbuye was yesterday released from jail in Turkey. I’m very grateful to the legal team, our diaspora leadership and all Ugandans who did everything to see that he gets his freedom,” Bobi Wine posted on his Facebook page.

Lumbuye had been on the wanted list by the Ugandan government for his poisonous propaganda and information deemed a security threat.

He was fond of peddling what government termed as absolute dangerous lies and these did not stop at only the government but tore through some religious leaders and Buganda Kingdom.

It’s not yet clear whether Lumbuye was arrested by Turkish authorities for breaking some of the laws there or if the Ugandan government had a hand in it.
